Exhaust Vibration

Hey,

Had an issue with my old exhaust where it was rattling/vibrating, anyway to cut a long story short i had a whole new exhaust system fitted (better one).

Anyway i have noticed a vibration/rattling noise when coming down the gears and revving whilst stationary. It sounds quite tinny.

Anyway i have tried to look under the car and the exhaust does move slightly (fairly tight though) and i have noticed the red rubber grips holding the bracket up has split and it has dropped down.

Do you think this could be the reason why it is vibrating and possibly catching on something?

Sam

If the straps have split and the brackets have dropped then it certainly isnt going to help matters, and will only end up putting extra strain on the remaining ones causing those to fail eventually too, so renew any that arent up to scratch.
They dont put them on if they arent needed in these cost cutting days.

I had an issue like that where the aluminum heat shield made a very tinny sound. They may either be loose or you're now rubbing against them slightly. There are small 10mm nuts that hold the shields on
Those isolation hangers aren't expensive and are easy to replace. I'd get that done soonest.
